Publisher's Summary

In Paradise, nothing is what it seems....
Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case - but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida.
A picture-perfect town on Florida's Gulf Coast, Paradise thrives on the wealthy tourists and retirees drawn to its gorgeous weather and beaches. The local police have ruled his aunt's death an unfortunate, tragic accident. But just before she died, she mailed a letter to Puller's father, telling him that beneath its beautiful veneer, Paradise is not all it seems to be.
What Puller finds convinces him that his aunt's death was no accident… and that the palm trees and sandy beaches of Paradise may hide a conspiracy so shocking that some will go to unthinkable lengths to make sure the truth is never revealed.

What disappointed you about The Forgotten?

I was disappointed by the narration.

Would you be willing to try another book from David Baldacci? Why or why not?

I have listened to other books by this author, but don't remember them having sound effects.

What didn’t you like about Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance?

The narration seemed clipped and abrupt . The pace was stacotto (sp)

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I could not get past the narration I felt I was listening to an old radio performance

Any additional comments?

I need to be able to check out the sound before buying and my sample of the book won't download for me . I DO NOT like sound effects in my books.

Weak plot/annoying sound effects

A poor plot combined with unnecessary sound effects make a hard to stick with listen. From the first (where we hear the sound of a boat) to the end this is full of the kind of sound effects I remember from the old radio days...but not done as well.

The plot drags on and on and isn't helped by the narrators. It took me days to get thru this-I like to finish the books I buy but this novel--gawd--it isn't worth buying.

I usually enjoy Baldacci novels-though this and the first novel in the series are the first books I've bought as audio....I can't decide if it's the pacing of the plot or the terrible add ons of music, the ocean, the speed boat, guns shooting etc etc.

I wish producers would read reviews and understand that most of we readers dislike the sound effects.

I can't recommend it...not worth a credit.
